Beginnings: Stories and Starting Points

logo_composite Looking back through time at both our lives and the larger picture of history that frames these lives, we come across a number of foundation stories. These starting points can represent key moments whether personal, familial, institutional, or national, and these contained blocks of meaning that contextualize and explain our present in terms of our past.

When and where does anything truly begin? Can the origin of WWI be traced to the killing of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, or to the seven other European leaders assassinated over the previous two decades? Should American Union General Abner Doubleday be celebrated as the originator of baseball, or Al Gore as the founder of the Internet?

Can you visualize at what point you launched your career as a photographer, or became an adult, or fell in love?
